The Harris family took over this 56 acre dairy farm in 1986 and we farmed it until 1999 there was a decline in the dairy industry. We had already established the seasonal site and touring the site on the riverbank. Mendip Lake was dug in 2000 when we built the static site. Quantock Lake was dug in 2004 and we subsequently landscaped 6 lodge pitches around it. In 2010 the old workshop and hay barn were replaced with 4 self-catering cottages. We further extended the seasonal site to 29 pitches to keep up with demand and made improvements to the shower/toilet block with underfloor heating making use of our biomass boiler.
The park is in a peaceful location with beautiful landscaped grounds with far reaching views across the Somerset Levels to the Mendip hills, Glastonbury Tor and the Quantock hills. These views can be seen from our walkway which is perfect for exercising your furry friends.
In addition fishing available on the Rivers Brue & Cripps, we have two fishing lakes which are well stocked with Carp, Roach, Tench and Rudd. It is home to an abundance of wildlife including owls, Kingfishers, buzzards, otters and wild deer.
It is an excellent location for fishing, canoeing, walking and cycling and within easy reach of many attractions and beaches. We are local to many attractions and a short drive from Burnham on Sea. A warm welcome awaits you at Cripps we very much hope you enjoy your stay with us.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left I could not fault a thing. Beautiful grounds. Leah and family have an amazing place here. The Spa was absolutely stunning. We stayed in a cottage called Swallow this was a lovely space to spend a few days aways.. All the little touches from the milk to the wine to the sweets and packs of Tissues. We had the pleasure of booking the spa for a package where we had sole use of the sauna, and hot tub while each of us had a beautiful massage by Tamara. We had also booked the prosecco and nibbles which was excellent. I can’t wait to go back thank you so much for a well needed break.
Beautiful peaceful setting – a perfect family getaway. We stopped here for two nights at the end of our West Country trip so that we were well placed to visit Cheddar Gorge. The cottage is a real gem: very clean, cosy and well equipped for self catering. The beds are very comfortable too and lots of personal touches which make it feel like a home away from home. The rural setting on the site meant that we slept well and our boys loved going for walks to visit the farm animals. The river and lake are also lovely and we look forward to trying out kayaking next time we come. The icing on the cake is The spa facilities (which you book separately on arrival) these are brand new – stylish awesome with amazing views over the fields. A perfect place to unwind.
Excellent cottage in a great location.
This cottage was perfect in everyway, cosy, warm and clean. The key was left inside the cottage so no contact was needed. The holiday park was well maintained and the hosts were helpful and friendly. The location was good for exploring the area, the coast being only 15 minutes away and plenty of shops nearby although you do need transport to get about. The lakes and river were good for fishing. We enjoyed our stay so much we have already booked for 2022.
Just returned home from spending a wonderful 7 nights at Cripps farm touring pitch. This truly is a wonderful place, beautiful peaceful setting, run by lovely people. Everything here you could possibly want & more, already booked & looking forward to our next stay. Thank you so much Ian & Cheryl.
